Hamrun Spartans Football Club’s Ailton Jorge dos Santos Soares was voted BOV Player of the Month for January 2021 – the second award in a row for Dodo.
The Cape Verde-born player is proving to be a great asset in Ħamrun’s strong challenge to win their first Premier League title in three decades.
Soares maintained his brilliant form during January. In the match against Santa Lucia, with the Spartans trailing by two goals, Soares unleashed a powerful drive to narrow the deficit. Deep into stoppage time, Soares provided the assist for Franklin Sasere to head home and earn Ħamrun an important point.
Earlier in the month, the Spartans found themselves a goal down and with 10 men against Mosta. Soares connected with a Karl Micallef cross to head home the equaliser. His attacking flair and assist to Sasere for Ħamrun’s third goal earned him the BOV Player of the Match honour.
Dodo received his trophy from Gilbert Zahra, Manager of BOV’s Hamrun Branch in the presence of MFA Vice-President Matt Paris.
Fondazzjoni Arka were chosen by Dodo to benefit from BOV’s donation related to this award.
